Botox® is a purified protein muscle-relaxant that is administered using a series of tiny injections. Botox® is a non surgical treatment for lines and wrinkles.
Botulinum Toxin (Botox®) acts as a relaxant for jaw muscles, inducing relaxation and also thins the chewing muscles (masseter) in the lateral jaw. The injected Botox® will block the nerve impulses of the muscles in the selected area, diminishing the fine lines and wrinkles while ensuring your cheekbones look full and face is lifted. It also helps to refresh your overall appearance, giving you a more youthful-looking face that shaves years off your actual age.*
Approximately 11.8 million1 Botox® Cosmetic procedures have been administered in the United States since 2002. 97% of 117 patients surveyed were satisfied with the results of their Botox® Cosmetic experience.
Botox® Treatments in Auckland is administered by a healthcare professional as a simple, nonsurgical treatment that is injected directly into the muscles between the brows around the eyes and in the forehead. It works by blocking nerve impulses to the injected muscles. This reduces muscle activity that causes moderate to severe lines to form.
Who is Botox suitable for?
The treatment is also suitable for individuals who are afraid of or do not want to opt for surgical methods. It consists of a few simple injections to the selected areas, with numbing cream applied prior to treatment in order to reduce any discomfort or pain. The smallest and finest needles are used to inject Botox®, minimizing any redness, bruising or bleeding on the facial skin – these are the only “side effects” of the treatment, as actual side effects are extremely uncommon. At Face Doctors Remuera, all our patients undergo a Total Face Consultation. This is also true prior to the administration of Botox®. We consider every person as unique and will discuss your concerns and how Botox® will work for you. We only have highly trained and qualified Doctors administering Botox®.
